Closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Day. Open on July 4.
Focus: Twentieth century and contemporary American art, with a special focus on works by living artists.
Appealing to kids: Even though some of the subject matter may be too mature, the colors, shapes, and style of contemporary art can be attractive and inspiring to children. The museum has many programs to help young people of all ages explore the works, including Saturday morning tours and activities for the entire family; stroller tours for parents and babies 0-18 months; guided visits for children ages 4-5; sketching tours for older children ages 6-10; after-school programs for high school students; and a sensory-friendly tour for children on the autism spectrum. The Whitney Kids website invites artists ages 8-12 to collect their favorite works, share opinions, and take quizzes.
